Nigerians divided as military calls for ban on Amnesty International

Tuesday 20:56 GMT

Nigerians living in the north have expressed mixed views after the military recommended a ban on Amnesty International after the human rights group reported thousands killed in inter-ethnic conflict.

Residents in Maiduguri, birthplace of the Boko Haram insurgency, are split over a call by Nigeria's military to have Amnesty International kicked out of the country. In a statement issued by the army's spokesman, Brigadier General Sani Usman Kuka Sheka, the top military official charged that Amnesty's operations were geared "towards damaging the morale of troops fighting Boko Haram insurgents."
